Confused Help

S - November 4

Hi Ladies, My doc said my due date was on 25 dec when i first went for the checkup. Then after my U/S at 18 week she moved it 5 days back that was 20 of dec. Recently I had one more U/S at 31 weeks and the technician said my baby weight 4.11oz. But Yesterday when I went to the doc the U/S report said my baby weighed 4 lbs. Which one is right, whom to believe? And another question is my doctor moved my weeks by one which makes it 33 weeks instead of 32 but she still gave me a due date of dec 22. Whats happening here. I am totally confused? please somebody explain this to me. Thankyou

as far as i know, after 18-20 weeks baby's start to grow at different rates which is why it is hard to predict an accurate date after that.the doc will go by your earlist scan as close as he can because this will be the most accurate

i agree with j. the thing with the due date is that you could go 2 weeks before, or 2 weeks after your predicted due date. i think it's only about 5% of women actually give birth on their due date. as for weight of the baby, they can only speculate, based on averages of your # of weeks, fundal height etc. it's sometimes hard to deal with all the uncertainty since everybody is always asking "when are you due"? if i were you, i'd just pick a date they've given you and just a__sume you'll be delivering in the end of December. It could be a great Christmas day for you! :)

Thankyou j and tracy. This is so confusing and frustrating. But I know once the baby is born everything will change. Yes tracy its the very best christmas present for me.
